IBPS PO Prelim Exam Pattern & Specifics
The Preliminary paper is distinguished by the fact that it has only three sections and is easier than the Main paper. However, the 1-hour duration in which you need to attempt 100 questions ensures that the paper will be a competitive one. Here is the section-wise structure of the two papers.
Name of Section
No. of Qs.
Composite Time of 1 hour
1. BILINGUAL TEST: Every section (except English Language) in the paper will be available in Hindi as well as in English.
2. NEGATIVE MARKING: Each wrong answer deducts 0.25 of the marks assigned to that question from your total. In this case, since each question is worth 1 mark, you lose ¼ marks per wrong answer.
3. CUT-OFFS: Each section has an individual cut-off. Besides this, there is a minimum overall score decided by the IBPS after the results are tallied, that you need to cross to move to the next round. Qualifying the Prelims in this way gets you to the Main Exam. And securing the Mains cut-off qualifies you for the Interview round.
IBPS PO Mains Exam Pattern & Specifics
The Mains paper is tougher than the Prelims exam. In the duration of 3 hour, you must attempt 155 Qs worth of 200 marks. Here is the section-wise structure of the paper.
No. of Qs
Reasoning & Computer
Data Analysis & Interpretation
(with special reference to Banking)
1. BILINGUAL TEST: Every section (except English Language) in the paper will be available in Hindi as well.
2. NEGATIVE MARKING: Each wrong answer deducts 0.25 of the marks assigned to that question.
